A pendant depicting Orpheus and Euridice in the Renaissance style. He is playing a fiddle rather than a lyre, as was common in depictions at the time. Her feet don’t touch the ground.
Orpheus looks back
If you can walk without looking
Back, you may need no reminding
Of the reason for the stricture.
You will not want anyone pointing
Out that there is really nothing
And nobody coming behind you,
And like this you will continue
As long as you are playing
On the lyre and singing,
Knowing that your retinue
Of only one is following,
Breathing, right behind you
All the way up the avenue
Out of hell, always matching
Steps with steps towards the rapture
Of Apollonian light and blue
Heaven, always with hindsight seeing
Her living body walk behind you.
